The 5 C’s of Luxury Travel


Welcome to the world of luxury travel, where we focus on five essential aspects: Culture, Cuisine, Community, Content, and Customization. These elements are key to crafting extraordinary journeys for travellers.


Whether you're interested in exploring new cultures, enjoying exquisite food, connecting with fellow travellers, accessing captivating content, or tailoring your trip to your preferences, luxury travel has it all.



1. Culture

Both cultural heritage and local culture are huge drivers of global travel. 27% of U.S. international travelers view themselves as "sophisticated explorers" who state their primary travel motivation is the desire to explore new cultures and traditions while on vacation. These travelers want to learn new things and have new experiences while abroad. They value cultural heritage, performance arts, storytelling, and luxury products that showcase unique traditions and techniques.


“Travelers looking for a luxury trip want their dreams to become reality. They look for something unique, above their expectations with superb service where their needs and wants are fulfilled. This includes exclusivity, privacy, and everything from relaxation to adventure, with pampering and extras.”


Carrie McDougall
President, Cultural Crossroads


2. Cuisine

All travelers need cuisine, but the luxury travelers seek out culinary experiences as a hallmark of their vacation. Whether in taking local cooking classes on their trip, using a culinary experience as a trip theme (as in wine region tourism), or dining at fine restaurants around the world, travelers make cuisine a priority of their travel dollars.


For these travelers, local sourcing and sustainability issues increase the cache of this travel. Consumers are willing to pay more for upmarket experiences, yet have high expectations of quality and authenticity.


3. Community

While luxury travelers may not want shared travel experiences such as group tours or dormitory accommodations, they do want community. Upmarket travel accommodates this by leveraging storytelling and community in the marketing materials and by hosting non-site events that allow travelers to opt into sharing community with other guests. A nightly happy hour or optional tours coordinated by the hotel allow travel providers to cultivate community.


“Luxury is defined by attention to detail. Meticulous workmanship, sumptuous atmosphere and discerning good taste.”

 – Robert Mackasek

CEO, Valera Global


4. Content

Content in the form of marketing materials, web content, and real-time event or travel programming is a highlight of luxury travel. Busy travel consumers may enjoy planning but want easy access to experiences coordinated by others. Standalone luxury content materials and offerings fill this niche and allow consumers to sample as they like.


5. Customization

Perhaps the biggest of the 5 C's, customization allows luxury travelers to orchestrate their own unique travel experiences. From allowing travelers to select meals to let them purchase day tours to select locations, the luxury travel industry faces continued disruption to packaged travel tours, cruises, and other traditional mainstays. The more choices consumers are allowed, the happier they may be – a strong incentive to entice repeat business.


“Luxury, by definition, means something that appears to be the best of whatever it represents. It's a word that raises people's expectations, whether talking about clothing for women or locations for people to live ... You pay for recognition, but probably the most important thing it represents is delivery on the promise of the brand's name."

Isadore Sharp
Founder, Chairman & CEO Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts
